Washburn Academy Students Costa Rica

Washburn Goes to Costa Rica!

This spring, 18 Washburn Academy of Clearwater teens took a trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica! This trip was filled with adventure and the students learned about other cultures and lifestyles, and even practiced their Spanish skills.

Over the course of a week they had many adventures including zip lining, surfing, sailing, hiking and much more. Students paid for much of this trip with fund raisers in the weeks leading up to the trip.

The students also took time out from their adventures to reach out to the teachers of Costa Rica who were peaceably on strike because they had not been paid for several months. They passed out The Way to Happiness books to these teachers and many teachers asked where they could obtain additional copies for their students, friends and families.

This was such an amazing experience that Washburn Academy of Clearwater is planning for future trips!
